Chris Demma, Oil Painter

Arizona native Chris Demma’s oil paintings invite you the experience the rugged yet evocative beauty of the Sonoran desert landscape. Her contemporary Southwestern works are creative expressions of the exotic botanicals, light, and atmospheric of this singular place.


Demma, working from personal photos, searches for unique patterns, colors and shapes then translates her images into intuitive impressions that she shares with us through her oil paintings. She describes her purpose: “My primary passion is inspiring people to partake in the mystery and wonder of the Sonoran Desert."
